Fashionably Green

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past few decades, you know as well as I do that living a greener life is not only healthy for you and the planet, but it’s stylish too. Besides the obvious choices like switching to LED lighting, walk when you can, etc. There’s one point me and my family are working on, recycling! Have a look around you and see what stuff you can make a massive change on in your day to day life!

Are you the type who buys bottled water, then why not filter at home and use a glass bottle instead? Do you often buy new toys for your kids? How about arranging with a group of friends to exchange or borrow toys from each other?

I’ve made a conscious decision to include my children in this new and exciting life change. There are so many clever ways to reuse and recycle our daily items. Our family uses straws a lot, so these stainless steel ones are not only planet and wildlife approved, but family approved as well. Last but not least, kids lunch boxes… Even the sturdiest of plastic lunch boxes break or crack, that’s why I got this rustic looking one. So my six year old daughter doesn’t really care whether her lunch box is rustically trendy, but she does love the three compartments and all the healthy food that goes into it. Win, win!

Hug Mug

Don’t mind me, I’m just sitting here trying to enjoy the calm before the storm with a nice cup of tea. It’s Friday and the weekend is almost upon us.

Soon there will be what I like to call, the last of the school runs… Or at least for this week, until we are back in the grind again Monday morning bright and early. In two short hours, the house will be loud once again and there will be little feet running around, playing, laughing and creating joyful chaos.

These moments are precious to me, because I get to hear noises and voices I otherwise don’t, not while the kids are home or awake. My neighbor just got home, he’s dogs are greeting him, M is amusing her self with the story she’s making up for Teddy (it’s “nap” time) and last but not least, I can hear my self think!

It’s Friday, another weekend filled with board games, movie night, imaginative role-plays, giggles and lots of hugs are ahead of us, but first… I’m going to sit here and enjoy my hug mug a little longer.

Teddy Bear Tea Party

The summer holidays is nearing it’s end and I’m starting to run low on ideas on how to keep the kids busy, but fear not because I always have a few things up my sleeve.

My youngest daughter and her teddy have a very special bond. They have been inseparable since she was a teeny tiny baby. The love she has for that tatty old bear, is beyond what any word could express. An old friend like that should be celebrated and what better way to do that, than with a tea party?
